5 Steps to Perfect Attendance
Published on February 19, 2013 by Karen Newmeyer
Someone once said “Practice makes perfect,” and now it is a common phrase. For many, perfection may seem like a lofty goal and even impossible. However, it is possible to be perfect in different things and one of the easiest things to be perfect in is class attendance. At Broadview University, not only is it easy, it also qualifies those dedicated students for 20 percent off their textbook fees for the next quarter. Now, that is some incentive! Here is a 5-step guide to achieving perfect attendance:
- Step 1: Plan ahead. What time is class? How far away do you live? Are there bad weather conditions?
- Step 2: Leave with time to spare. If the drive is 15 minutes, give yourself 25 minutes. With extra time, feelings of stress or being too hurried are relieved. Also, if traffic is at a crawl, you can arrive knowing that you did your very best to be there on time.
- Step 3: Be early and ready for class. The extra minutes before class can be spent preparing for quizzes or reading up on the subject matter of the day.
- Step 4: Repeat steps 1-3 for every class.
- Step 5: Smile. You made it!
The rewards for arriving on time, or even better arriving early, are many. Some of the highest awards are ones that can’t be physically measured, such as being prepared to learn, being present for lectures and lab assignments, and getting help from the instructors and classmates.
The more tangible rewards include receiving 20 percent off of textbook fees for the following quarter and having your name on the “perfect attendance” list.
Congratulations to the Broadview University-Orem students who achieved perfect attendance during the fall quarter of 2012!

There are times when emergencies happen, but they are called emergencies because they are infrequent—sudden experiences that need to be handled immediately. If students do have an emergency or are going to be late, they can call the school and let the instructor know.
